Casita Privada Pinheiro is the second villa in the Privada Group portfolio of luxury villa rentals. This 4 bed 4 bath villa is in one of the Algarve's most sought after

and picturesque areas.

The house, set in its own gardens with a private swimming pool, and benefits from a total refit of all rooms. All bedrooms benefit from en suite bathrooms, a lounge, dining room, breakfast room and kitchens (both inside and out) , bbq, traditional bread oven and large lawned areas.

Like her sister properties Casita Privada Pinheiro has all the luxury fittings and finishings the owners like their clients to have. Egyptian cotton bedding and towels, fully stocked (brand new) kitchen, furnishings you would expect to find in boutique hotels around the world and all this just minutes walk from the Ria Formosa and the sea. The famous Fialho Restaurant which serves amazing local fish (described as only fresher when it's swimming in the sea) is again only minutes away.

There is also a cycle track near the villa which takes you along the Ria Formosa and directly to one of the best beaches in the Algarve. Praia Do Barril, also known as the 'anchors graveyard' or the 'train beach' is easily also reached by car in just 7 mins. Park up in the newly landscaped car park, walk over a pedestrian bridge to a 'train station' (well it's a platform with a sun shade) and a toy like train will take you to the main beach and restaurants in just 5 mins. You can walk but the train is about €1,50 and it's just such an easy ride in the heat. Once there you have a choice of coffee shops and restaurants which all serve great drinks and food throughout the day.

The villa is 25 mins from Faro airport on a virtually straight road. Travel through the sea port town of Olhao and grab some groceries and fresh fish, drive on along the N125 and within no time you could be at Casita Privada Pinheiro for an unforgettable holiday.

We can offer this lovely villa for longer autumn and winter let's at reduced rates plus utilities. The property benefits from new solar energy throughout which means monthly bills for hot water and electricity are greatly reduced. Please ask us for more detailed information on longer lets.

Amazing Villa!

By Karen And Russell Strawson on 04-Oct-2019

We live here and required extra accommodation for friends to stay in October as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary.
Casita Privada is amazing! It is so beautifully presented and a perfect location. The pool is enclosed and the owners have gone to so much trouble to ensure total comfort. They also provide full information about the area.
We would recommend Casita Privada to those wishing to explore this special part of the Eastern Algarve. It is a jewel!

Another Fab Stay

By Christine on 10-Aug-2019

As a family of 7 this was our second stay in this wonderful villa. Jonty and Ian are perfect hosts without being intrusive. They also recommended a few local restaurants for us to try! They were there to meet us on arrival and visited throughout our stay to clean the pool and villa. The villa is in a great location to explore Tavira and surrounding areas. There is great space inside and out. We especially enjoyed the outside eating area and BBQ where we saw some beautiful sunsets. The villa is a real home from home with everything that you need. The pool is a great size and is just the right temperature to cool down in.

Stay at Casita Privada Tavira, Portugal

By Keith And Christine on 01-Aug-2019

Three generations of us stayed at Jonty and Ian's villa in early august, and everyone had only good things to say about the exceptional high quality of the property, quiet location, and the attention to detail throughout. The area itself had everything we were looking for with fantastic beaches, and the weather was perfect , we visited places such as Ria Formosa National Park , Olhao, Barril and Tavira Beaches and many other interesting places during our stay.
We would recommend Antonios restaurant in nearby Moncarapacho which is just a 20 minute drive from the villa, also went into Tavira Town most evenings where there was live open air music and cultural events.
Also upon arrival Jonty provided a home baked Banana Cake which was a nice touch, but it only lasted a couple of days, therefore if we have any criticism, we would suggest that when they arrive midweek to carry out work on the swimming pool that they bring along another cake. ( optional )
But in conclusion would say that over many years renting holiday homes in various parts of the UK and Europe, this is probably the best. And look forward to returning at some time in the future

Fabulous Villa

By Tracey And Kieron on 30-Jul-2019

Fabulous villa in peaceful but handy location.
By Tracey and Kieron
Stayed 31-May-2019
This fantastic villa is situated in its own private grounds overlooking the Algarve countryside. A tranquil location but handy for visiting the medieval town of Tavira, the beautiful Barril beach and you have easy access to coastline spanning from the boarders of Spain up to Faro and beyond. The villa is wonderfully designed with flowing space and each room having access to an en-suite or bathroom. The pool area, outside seating and BBQ are safe for young children to play and great for entertaining. One of the best places we’ve stayed in and we’ve been coming to the Algarve for 12 years. Thank you to Jonty and Ian for making our stay most enjoyable with homemade muffins, drizzle cake to die for and lots of low-down on where new to discover; local restaurants and hidden secrets of where best to eat and drink for reasonable prices in beautiful settings.

The Perfect Holiday

By Jonathan D'Hooghe on 12-Jun-2019

After an early flight from the UK we arrived at Pinheiro to be met in person by the owners, Jonathan and Ian. Their welcome and their attention to detail set the ideal tone for a Perfect Holiday.
The home was kitted out to a very high standard from kitchen utensils to quality linen and towels. The décor and furnishings were to a very high and tasteful standard and with 4 bedrooms and bathrooms we all had our own space and privacy when required.
The garden and pool area were delightful, very quiet and relaxing and in the sun all day long.
Pinheiro also has the advantage of being very close to the coast so it is a short drive to wonderfully safe (for children) beaches and array of restaurants and bars.
We also visited the larger towns of Tavira and Olhao both within a 20 minute drive, one east and one west. Both are worth a visit, particularly on the sea front at Olhao where you can visit the fish market or take a water taxi to the islands just off shore.
Being a golfer, I can recommend the golf courses of the Eastern Algarve as being high quality and less busy than the western resorts such as Vilamoura.
in summary? - It was so lovely, relaxing and enjoyable, we are booking again for next year!!

Top class

By Kate on 11-May-2019

Can’t praise this villa enough. Excellent location for town and for the various beaches. In a lovely peaceful spot with everything you need if you wanted a day at “home” . We loved the outdoor barbecue area with its own pizza oven.
We have booked again for later on in the year.
Thankyou owners for an excellent property and 1st class service

By Julia S on 30-Oct-2017

Last minute short break in the sun for partner's birthday - we chose this quaint villa to give us space, independence and tranquility. This trip exceeded our expectations and was like staying in an up market hotel (apart from cooking for ourselves) but even that was fun with the outdoor kitchen.
Would highly recommend this for a stay whether it is just the two of you or a family - we will be heading back with a few more in tow next time :-)

Fabulous Villa, great location.

By J Moore on 19-Sep-2017

This immaculately kept and spotlessly clean Villa was perfect for our family of 8 in 3 generations. The pool is great with a fence around it which stopped our 3 year old Grandson sneaking in. We felt very comfortable and at home here. It is close to beaches, restaurants, towns and supermarkets but you do need a car. We all loved the trip on the small train to the beach.
The Local rep Lisa and the cleaner Claudia were very nice and extremely helpful. I will definitely be recommending this one.

Hi Judith
Very many thanks for taking the time to write a review on Casita Privada Pinheiro. We were so glad to read you had such a lovely holiday and you loved the area so much. The local fish restaurant you mentioned in your private mail is also a winner with everyone, the food is absolutely delicious. The beach at Barill is also another massive winner for all ages and taking the 'toy train' across the Ria Formosa is a great way to start the day, we are really lucky that Barill is just 10 mins away. Bookings for 2018 are already coming in now and Portugal looks set to have another busy and successful year next year. Thank you for choosing The Privada Group for your holiday this year and we hope we can welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards.
Jonty and Ian

Perfect location for a family holiday

By Hemant on 23-Aug-2017

5/5 Stayed ‎Jul‎ ‎2017
Hemant S.
We had a great holiday at Tavira. We had a full family group coming from three continents with an age range of 4 - 64. The property was very well laid out with clearly a lot of thought put into the design and decor. It was also well maintained with all amenities and utensils being of a high standard. The kids loved the pool and the outdoor barbecue was a particular treat. Location was good with the stunning Barril beach a five minute drive away (or 20 minute run if feeling energetic). The only minor complaint we had was the size of the double beds were a bit shorter and narrower than ideal. Lisa was very responsive with tips and any ongoing queries we had. Would highly recommend the property for any families looking for a relaxing break away from the mass tourist areas of the Algarve.

Owner's Response:
Thanks Hemant for such a great review and it was great you all meeting from such faraway places in the tiny hamlet of Pinheiro. The villa location really does sell itself and the amazing Barril beach is a winner every time. Apologies if the beds felt small for you, they are standard doubles. We hope you return to our little part of paradise again soon and thank you for taking the time to review Casita Privada Pinheiro. Kind regards Jonty and Ian

Beautiful property! 5/5 Stayed ‎Oct‎ ‎2016

By Lesley W on 07-Oct-2016

Just returned from a break in this stunning villa! I have stayed in the sister property (A Vila Privada) several times with groups of friends but as this break was just my husband and myself I thought we would try the owners new smaller villa. We had been advised about this new villa and were a little dubious that anywhere would live up to A Vila Privada and whilst this property is smaller and totally different we absolutely loved it. The decor and finish is stunning and felt like home straight away! The kitchen was great and the owners have really thought of everything. The agent Lisa was great especially waiting for us when we arrived late! The pool area is really nice and the pool was lovely after a few hours on the sun beds. There are some lovely beaches close by. Fuseta beach is beautiful especially with the great beach bar!! Try the garlic prawns!! Amazing Especially when washed down by a gin and tonic from their exclusive gin menu. Would definately reccomend this villa! Perfect for families, friends or just couples! I can't wait to come back again! Well done to the owners!! Another shiney link in the Privada chain!! Lesley W. Newark, Nottinghamshire, U.K.

Hi Lesley
Thank you so much (again) for such a fab review. We were a little nervous about you staying at Casita Privada Pinheiro as it is so different from A Vila Privada in size however we have tried to ensure our quality shines through and I think we have achieved that. It is in such a pretty 'hamlet' and guests are loving the feel of peace and quiet so close to the sea. So far in its first year it has captured guests hearts and we already have guests returning for a second time later this month. Flights are out for 2017 and with 2016 being Portugals busiest year for tourism it's no wonder they are doubling the size of the airport in Faro..!
Thank you again for supporting the 'Privada Group' and we look forward to you trying our Casita Privada Peral (No.3) next year when it is completed.
Jonty and Ian xx

we could see straight away that a lot of thought had gone into the design decor and layout of this villa. it was immaculte and very difficult to fault. its on a lovely quiet road with open fields one side and neighbours the other who we hardly saw. 5 mins in the car and we were at the beach!!! we barbied most nights but there is a great fish restaurant within walking distance.

Hi Kathy
Thank you for taking the time to review one of our properties. So glad you liked the villa and the surrounding areas. You were amongst the first visitors since we bought and refurbished the villa so it's important to us to receive feedback. Thank you for your mail saying particular details to how the villa is equipped and decorated, we like what we have done too. Also thank you for letting us know how hot it was in the evenings. We thought we would just put ceiling fans in the bedrooms and try to keep the villa as 'green' as possible however we have decided to put aircon in the bedrooms for 2017 as we don't want our clients to have restless nights. People don't have to use them but we think we should offer the choice.
Thanks again and please let us know when you have your dates for 2017

A secret piece of paradise 5/5 - Stayed ‎Aug‎ ‎2016

By Michelle H on 31-Aug-2016

Everything you see and read about this villa is true. We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was the perfect place to unwind, relax and soak up the Portuguese way of life. The location is superb and you are short distance from the coast and equally a very short car journey can take you to the most idyllic places along the Algarve coastline. The property is very clean and excellently maintained and attention to detail is second to none. The neighbours are friendly but by no means intrusive and that adds to the exclusive feel of this special place. It was everything we hoped for/wanted and more. The pool area is simply stunning.
Whilst there, we did a mixture of things, but our favourite was to use the outdoor kitchen and BBQ. There are of course some fantastic restaurants nearby such Fuseta, Santa Luzia and Olhao and we frequented these at lunchtime and/or evenings depending on the plans for the day. If you don't want to venture out with a car (for lunch and perhaps a cheeky one or two), then taxis are also cheap alternative.
You can have peaceful lazy days or you can easily tap in to a range of activities which Lisa (manager of the property) was fabulous at helping to sort out. Our most special outing to mark that we had been married a week was the boat trip to Farol Island. Words cannot describe how beautiful that was. That trip is a must do if you visit in the summer months even in to September/October. We will definitely book this villa again!

Hi F&M
Huge thank you from us for such a fabulous review. We are over the moon you chose to spend your honeymoon at Casita Privada Pinheiro and you had such an amazing time. Your review gave great detail to the villa and things you did and sharing these with others helps people make decisions for their forthcoming holiday. As you know this is our second villa and it had a very busy first season. We have received amazing feedback on how we have renovated it and already our third villa (due to be complete by February 2017) has generated quite a lot of interest because of the standard we finish our properties. Having property P8885 on Owners Direct (our first villa) also shows people the style and quality finishings we achieve for our clients. Thank you for booking again next year and we will make sure we leave you a few surprises for your arrival.
Kind regards
Jonty and Ian
